Anyone know of any good NFA's after '85. I pick 1985, b/c of the New Year Show which had a great execution of intro/reprise after throwing stones/aud/band-> lovelight.

I know EARLIER shows have great NFA - but it seems that '87 and on, led to the show closer being a throw away.

Tks

Last time I saw/heard the version on Truckin' Up To Buffalo, I really enjoyed it. Try one of wisconsin's fav shows as well. It has a much better version than most others post '85:

alpine '89- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7sNSduf7Gc

fun high energy version. the band is rocking and rock star jerry is feeling it- almost too much! he goes on a bit of a tangent at around the 6 minute mark that almost derails the train, but they pull it together in time for the final verse. good times.

deniro and yessss got it right.

7/4 and 7/17 of 89 boast two extremely well played NFAs. They are the only 80s versions I listen to, not that I know all of the 80s NFAs by a long shot.

alpine 89 consitently blows me away, the GDTRFB > NFA is pure money.
